Dear AJ

Thanks for your comments on Sea Wall and the others you commented on.Not surprisingly I disagree with your comments on both counts, bulkers and coasters. Their primary role is the movement of bulk cargoes. Hence they have no cargo handling gear and have holds designed with grab discharge in mind. While they may indeed carry break bulk cargoes where they to be offered so would similar vessels of any size including what might be traditionally referred to as Bulk Carriers.

As for being a coaster I would suggest that this term no longer applies since these vessels and many others of this size are no strangers to world wide training.

So may | suggest that a little more thought is applied before such comments are made. I would suggest that you also check out the experience of the poster before assuming that they do not know what they are talking about.

Best regards Michael Meredith
